VDOT crews make emergency repairs on I-64

Virginia Department of Transportation crews made an emergency repair Thursday to a pothole in the right lane of Interstate 64 eastbound near Colonial Parkway at Exit 242, according to VDOT communications manager Paula Miller.

The east right lane and right shoulder were closed, and repairs took several hours.

VDOT reported backups of several miles during the repairs.

Miller said repair crews arrived on scene around 10 a.m. and completed the work to repair the pothole in about five hours.  

The repair is in Segment II of the I-64 widening project.
